Mays' Retrial Starts Today

Posted August 8, 1998 7:00 a.m. EDT

— An accused cop-killer goes on trial in Raleigh tomorrow -- for the second time.

Police say Kawame Mays shot and killed Raleigh Detective Paul Hale last year.

The first trial ended with the jury deadlocked over whether Hale's death was first-degree murder.

Mays was convicted of killing another man he shot the same day Hale was killed.
